Andrea Solazzo
Show Bio
Andrea Solazzo is the Gleaning and Community Outreach Coordinator for the Vermont Foodbank. Based out of the Burlington area, Andrea works with partnering food shelves in Northern Vermont to implement VT Fresh, a Vermont Foodbank program that improves access and appeal for health food choices by setting-up attractive produce displays and cooking demos. In the summer months Andrea coordinates the Vermont Foodbank’s local gleaning program by working with volunteers to harvest excess produce at local farms; that produce is then distributed throughout Vermont to low-income community members. Prior to this position she led and organized international agricultural volunteer trips abroad, worked at farms in Vermont and Florida, and organized for UN-affiliated organizations around international climate justice and food sovereignty issues.
